Ex-Deputy Commander in Xinjiang Pleads Guilty to Corruption
What’s new: Yang Fulin, former deputy commander of the Xinjiang Production and Construction Corps (XPCC), pleaded guilty to charges of taking bribes worth about 30.5 million yuan ($4.38 million).
Yang stood trial Thursday in Shandong province. Sentencing will be announced at a later date, the court said.
The 65-year-old former official’s violations spanned 19 years from 2001 to 2020 as he held senior positions in Xinjiang. He used his power to benefit others in project contracting, promotions, case handling and other matters in exchange for bribes, prosecutors said.
